COORDINATING TRANSPORTATION SERVICES FOR THE ELDERLY AND HANDICAPPED. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The summary presents an overview of a two-volume report which examines the nature and extent of legislative barriers and incentives to coordinated transportation services for the elderly and handicapped. Eight federal statutes are analyzed with regard to funding, planning, and service requirements. Incentives for state and local agency participation as well as regulatory reform are recommended for further consideration. Establishment of human service transportation authorities within the states, and Office for Coordinated Transportation in HEW and DOT are proposed. In the context of this report, coordination of transportation means sharing existing transportation resources through interagency cooperative agreements.
